  1. Excellent Bart. I can’t wait to read the Echos. Happy that I have a six week holiday now.
  2. Thanks for the link! I just used it to make a 45 dollar contribution. I hope many more members will do the same.
  3. I just made a donation of 45 US dollars. Really hope the forum will stay forever! I am rather busy, so I don’t post often, but I try to read once in a while.
  4. Absolutely wonderful to find all the information here. Every time i take a look I see / find something interesting. Thanks for all the great work you are doing with this collection. Also I am looking for media coverage and information about the Chappaquidick incident involving senator Edward Kennedy. Does anyone knows where to find it?
  5. I just finished reading the third edition of the book Chappaquiddick Speaks, written by Bill Pinney. It really is an interesting and well researched book. Some part is too technical in my opinion, but overall it is clear what he is trying to prove. Anyone else here who have read the book? The theory sounds convincing (that the whole accident was staged to cover up another accident earlier that evening). But: if so, why isn’t there any reopening of the case? Does anyone have heard official reaction from the Boiler Room Girls who are still alive? And: could this be the real history changer that the book claims to be?
  6. If this is true it would of course be an interesting piece of the puzzle. But it seems that it is doubtful that this testimony is really valuable. I have to say I am not very familiar with the other statements from or about this witness. I would appreciate it when there would be some more info for and against this witness testimony.
  7. I am rather confused with all the different documents mentioned in the press release. Do I get it clear when I think they mean that all documents are at least opened in part? Some are still in heavily redacted form. And some are really difficult to read. So I am wondering how in the world would we know what is in them. But Jim, according to your message there still are more documents “in secret”? It is so strange that they keep those documents stored. I cannot imagine that they will contain something really important or something really damaging. I mean : they got 55 years to get rid of those papers ...
  8. I agree that it would be an interesting list. Together with the Freemasons it might also be interesting to have a look at members of the Bilderberg Conference as well.
  9. I have been born in 1973. My parents have vivid memories about the time they heard the news. Over here in Holland it was 7.30pm when the president was shot. First news came at 8pm in the television news. The tv was not so well developed as in the United States. I believe there was only one tv channel in The Netherlands. At 8pm anchorman Fred Emmer opened the news with the statement that there had been a shooting. Then the tv continued the regular report for a while. The radio had more news. My mother was deeply moved by the Assassination. She made a scrapbook of the events with clipping from Dutch newspapers. When I found that book in the mid 1980’s I started to be interested in the topic.
  10. Thanks for sharing. As always : good information!! It is great to be a member of this forum. It really gives so much different angles and so much insight. Although: the more I read, the more I have the feeling that there is so much unknown.
  11. If the call is really made, it of course would prove a conspiracy. Same goes for the Rose Cheramie claims of course. And is believe there are more stories like this. Also the case of Richard Nagell. But that would also mean quite a lot of people were involved on a conspiracy / cover up. Or there should be one person (or a few persons) who could be linked to all these people.
  12. Does anyone of the more experienced people here have any idea about whom they are talking. Allthough the name is blanked out, there is some information which might make it possible to know who they are talking about. https://www.archives.gov/files/research/jfk/releases/104-10331-10315.pdf
  13. As I understood the original message from president Trump he would only erase the names of people who are still alive. But many of these files are blanked out over whole pages. So I don't think that this was as promised. It all gives more and more reasons to doubt the role of the CIA and the FBI. They still seem to be more powerful than the president of the United States. And the main question remains: what are they hiding? On one hand I don't believe we will ever see "the smoking gun" in one those files. On the other hand I am wondering why they are going through all these efforts to keep frustrating the process of opening these files. When they are confident that they have nothing to hide there is no need to behave so strangely.
  14. He said that on Twitter about the last 300 documents. A Dutch newspaper reported it and I checked his twitter to see if it was true. “After strict consultation with General Kelly, the CIA and other Agencies, I will be releasing ALL #JFKFiles other than the names and... ...addresses of any mentioned person who is still living. I am doing this for reasons of full disclosure, transparency and... ...in order to put any and all conspiracy theories to rest.”
  15. Btw I think it is “funny” that now-President Trump used this allegation in his campaign. And I just read that he will relaease all the closed files (with only names and addresses of living persons marked out) to stop the conspiracy theories. So somewhere there is a little discrepancy. Seems to me that he changed his mind now he is president. Or maybe the intelligence services made him change his mind? At least it makes me wonder....
  16. As many of you here I started digging in the papers. So far I like these two documents the best: https://www.archives.gov/files/research/jfk/releases/docid-32112964.pdf https://www.archives.gov/files/research/jfk/releases/docid-32112987.pdf Those two documents show that president Ford noticed at latest in 1975 that the inteligence agencies didnt tell the truth to the Warren Commission. And it is also clear that Allen Dulles knew much more then he said in that same commission. Of course that is not a surprise, but while browsing these papers it was something that caught my eye.
  17. So it is really going to happen... As soon as it becomes available I will try to download it and start looking at interesting information. I guess most of you here will be doing the same thing. I hope there will be some interesting information about Oswald’s trips to Mexico, but also about his trip from Sovjet Union via Germany and Holland to the States. Let’s see if the files will shed some new light on these things.
  18. I also have to work and also “my” timezone is not very handy...So I really hope this “event” will also come available on dvd or as download afterwards.
  19. Too many inconsistencies... I think James named them perfectly!! Main question: why didn't they interview all the suspects? If they wait too long all witnesses will be gone. Only explanation : maybe they are not really interested in the real story.
  20. Very interesting!! I will for sure order a copy of this book. So at least your book will make it to the Netherlands too.
  21. Everything is happening a bit slower in The Netherlands. So the movie Jackie is only in the cinemas here for the last two weeks. Today i went to see it. Although i agree with a lot of the things Jim wrote in his review i have to say i still really like the movie. Most of all because of the perspective it gave. After reading, watching and thinking about the assassination it all becomes so "technical". And a movie like this sets me back in the right place. I mean: now you once again see that it is not only the president who is killed, but also a father and a husband. Also this movie will attract attention to the Kennedy killing. I went to see the movie with a colleague and both he and other people in the audience all are interested in the assassination. So hopefully this movie will atrack a lot of attention. I really think the Portman plays Jackie in a wonderful way. Of course not all the events will be historically correct. But over all it gives me things to think about.
  22. Isn't it possible that the same person was using differerent aliases? Or that Jim or John was some sort of a nickname ?
  23. What keeps crossing my mind when I read all the discussions is the way the case was handled by police and other investigators at that time. In my option there is a lot that seems to be a cover up, or a conspiracy. But also when you would put all those ideas aside you still have to say that they made so many mistakes. In my opinion it would be far more problematic when they didn't do all those things on purpose. Let's for the argument say that all the people involved in the interrogation did all to the best of their ability. Then there can only be one conclusion : they all made some terrible and unforgivable mistakes. No notes - either with shorthand or longhand - of the interrogation of the person who supposedly killed the president and a police man, no tape recorder (although not common at that time, but still, this was a killing of the president. Reporters all over the place. Ordinary citizens in the police station and at the press briefings. It is unbelievable how many mistakes , problems, flaws there are when you would assume there was no cover up and all the people just did the best they could.
  24. Apparantly she does not have many friends so far ... I only see four of them listed. So maybe she just made the profile out of curiousity.
  25. I do totally agree with that. What has always surprised me is that it seems impossible for the "two sides" to listen to each other and try to combine evidence / ideas from both sides to find the truth. As a mathematician I am used to proof things with facts; not with ideas or meanings. When reading books about the Kennedy assassinations i always wonder why there are so few books who discuss both sides. Personally I really like the books by Michael Kurtz and by Flip de Mey. Because they both present a lot of information from both sides. In my opinion it would be so useful when all people on this forum would have the same approach.
